Bill to Require Study of Vehicle Cybersecurity

The Hill reports that Reps. Joe Wilson and Ted Lieu intend to introduce legislation that “would require a cross-sector study to examine detection protocols, deterrence techniques and privacy best practices” regarding vehicle cybersecurity. The bill would require the FTC and NHTSA “to develop standards to protect drivers’ privacy and to guard against a potentially deadly hack of a vehicle,” the article reports. The Hill calls the bill “much less ambitious than similar legislation in the Senate.” Wilson is quoted saying, “I am proposing the SPY Car Study Act because it is irresponsible to mandate changes in a developing field before accurately assessing the situation.” The Hill says that “several high-profile car hacking incidents” have “thrust” vehicle cybersecurity “into the limelight.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
